Everyday Button Bits + Button Boutique

     I suppose my blog should be titled “The Sporadic Blogger” because I stamp nearly every day. I graduated from law school in January and plan on taking the bar exam the end of July. My craft room is in the basement and it’s prone to flooding and insects. I finally have had time to thoroughly clean, disinfect, reassemble and reorganize my craft room. I am just puttering around with some finishing touches and then I should have everything under control…for now.
     I have a ton of cards made and photographed and a bunch of cards almost completed. I hope to start posting again in a timely fashion so that I can share them with you.
     I have been waiting for a set like PTI’s Button Boutique ever since they came out with their “button bits” sets and so far the two sets I have used have worked fabulously together. I couldn’t wait to share, so here are some images that haven’t made it onto cards yet. It’s the perfect way to have a mailable card using buttons! The idea to use shading to make the buttons look more realistic came from Debbie Olson – sheer genius!
